Asking for references after an internship isn’t exactly like asking for references from high school teachers for your college applications. It can be a little more intimidating to approach someone you’ve known for only a few months and ask them to recommend you for a job, especially when the company may have been hoping to hang on to you. That said, some things will always be the same. As a general rule for all recommendations, you should give the writer at least two weeks to write so it doesn’t interfere with their schedule. Thoughtful pieces, after all, require a little time for reflection. It’s also a good idea to send a note with two or three talking points to jog the writer’s memory. Write them in concise bullets, so it doesn’t seem like you’re just putting words in their mouth. This can be an excellent way to generate consistent messaging [...]

Having an opportunity to intern for New York City’s Fashion Week was incredible. I was able to intern for Kimberly Ovitz, the designer whose famous “Glavis” dress sold out after Lindsay Lohan recently wore it to court. It was my first time in NYC and I absolutely loved every day I was there. One of my best friends, Mandi, got the same internship as me, so we tackled the city together. Traveling to work was an experience in itself. Neither of us had ever rode on the subway before, and since we were staying with our friend in Brooklyn, we had to master the subway routes pretty quickly to get to work early every morning in Manhattan. Since we were the “behind the scenes” people, we were required to wear a nice, all-black outfit every day were worked. We worked with about four other interns and Shanon, Kimberly’s online media [...]

The Internet is full of dancing videos. Their stock is relatively cheap, as I’ve tried to communicate to my airline pilot uncle. But HASAN BABA takes a tired form to to new heights by synchronizing to pulsing electronic beat with a ferocity Justin Bieber would envy. He provides a blueprint for every aging dancer to follow: simplify your signature moves into two alternating stances and just lay into it. Even if your grandkids are totally unamused. Nagging Afterthought: Why does this family have two similar-sized TVs stacked on top of one another?

Matt is a print media and public relations major at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. Three facts about me: I’ve always dreamed about being a sportswriter for a newspaper, but now I’m more interested in advertising and PR, or, as my friend calls it, “the dark side.” Writing, whether it be for papers, a newspaper article, or anything else, has always come naturally to me. I’m thinking about writing an autobiography.

OK, since I was young I’ve always been interested in fashion. I used to design random things in my spare time, and would use the Internet to search different styles and designs I liked. I also started dancing a couple of years ago, which I fell in love with — but I never really shared my opinions on these things with anyone. So I started my blog, ‘Dream Believe Achieve,’ a while back. It was really more of a hobby to post things I found interesting: fashion, music, dance, entertainment etc. I got quite a lot of positive feedback, and through the blog, I started hearing about other talented young individuals. I’m 16, but I started my blog when I was 15. Some of the people I got to know more through blogging were Adeen(Remy & Jovany), Great $cott and Justin Antonius, to name a few. All of these people [...]
